Compass Box’s flagship blended grain whisky broke the mould upon its introduction in 2000.
Flaming Heart Profile
Blended Malt Scotch Whisky
Blended malt whisky Flaming Heart takes its name from a quote by 19th-century American poet and philosopher Ralph Waldo Emerson: ‘Every great achievement is the victory of a flaming heart.’
The limited edition expression – of which there have been several renditions – combines Highland malt whisky matured in new French oak ‘hybrid’ casks with smoky Caol Ila single malt.
